The Lovereading4Kids comment

The story of two sisters whose world falls apart just as for one of them fame is there for the taking. It will make you laugh and cry by turns and it's not to be missed.

A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher: I have sisters. one sadly died, the other was my idea of a catwalk queen:sixties mini skirts, Mary Quant make-up and Biba accessories. I watched them live lives similar to the girls in this story of what looks good, how people judge looks, buy and sell looks and what really matters in the end.

The Look is brilliant, funny and moving, and I'll admit I did cry out loud in the end. I think this is Sophia Bennett's best book yet; take a look, I'm sure you'll agree!

The Look by Sophia Bennett

With her world turned upside down, Ted has a lot of growing up to do, some of it in five-inch platforms. Can she be a supermodel and a super sister? Or will she have to choose between fame and family?
